On March 21st, 2015 we have reserved space at Alexis Park for MeepleCon 2015, a full day of board gaming in Las Vegas. Las Vegas currently does not have a dedicated annual board game convention and we'd really like to try and change that. We're hoping its success will lead to bigger and better annual cons in the future.

http://www.meeplecon.com/

We'd love it if you would help support us by:

1.Attending the con yourself of course...

2.Bring a friend with you.

3.Prepay for your tickets.

4.Consider volunteering.

5.Help us promote it.


Mark it on your calendar. We are just a bunch of local gamers that enjoy playing games. It'd be great to network with other gamers here in the valley. Hopefully this will lead to more games being played with more people beyond just the day of the con. Let us know what you think...

Sounds excellent! I am too far away to attend, but I will support you in spirit. We just started a brand-new little gaming con in South Florida. Same thing: there wasn't one, we wanted one, and decided not to wait for someone else to start it. We had a blast just two weeks ago on Jan 24. And we are doing it again in April!

Hopefully you are spreading the word via FB. And have a good website. (ours is www.flamingocon.org) And hope your location is near food, or has food at it even better. Can't think of any other advice at this late hour... [doh, reread your post -- you do have a FB page. Good!]

Best of luck! Hope you have great attendance and happy gamers!

Here is Phil Mingo, our flamingo, overlooking the crowd at FlaMinGoCon.



Here's the final four in our RoboRally tourney. The guy with the dark beard in the back won. Awkwardly, he was one of the organizers. So next con: you don't get to enter contests or tourneys if you didn't pay! LOL

Thanks for the advice Phil. Nice to hear from some other like minded people. FB (check), website (check), Meetup (check), Twitter (check), food near (check)... Doing everything we can to make this first event a success. I wish you and yours all the best as well.

Thank you for the plug, David! Really excited to introduce Immortal to new players at MeepleCon.

Also really excited that Vegas is getting our own dedicated convention for gamers. Piggy-backing it on the day after the GAMA Trade Show was an excellent choice!

How would you like to be the winner of a tournament at our very first MeepleCon? Well first, you have to be registered to have a chance. Second, you have to know the games. (We'll be teaching them so you can learn). The three confirmed tournaments will be: Ticket to Ride, Lords of Waterdeep, and King of New York. Are you ready to have some fun?

People on a budget can forget about the Hard Rock... $490 plus $50 in resort fees plus taxes for the two nights.

I'll decide in the next few days (want to look for less expensive accommodations).
